Lower Sacramento River & the “Egg Hatch”

Bob is all smiles with a Big Chunky LSac 'Bow McCloud, Upper Sac & Lower Sacramento River 10/24-26th

Bob returned for another weekend in the Shadow of Shasta and as he has on every visit this season brought good weather and good luck with him.  He enjoyed a couple days walking and wading local freestones and casting big dries to hungry trout.  We concluded the trip with a float on the Lower Sac where we found big trophy rainbows eating eggs and caddis pupa.  As usual the morning started a bit slow but we were soon into a couple dozen fish, landing over half of them with only three smaller than 14″ with more than that over 20″.  With the Salmon population in the river lower than the last two dismal years we’re uncertain how many more seasons we might expect this bounty.
